Anji and family, from North Wales, recommends Bugacula.

Tell us a bit about the game…

Up to four players race around the ‘house’ collecting as many of their coloured candles, but be careful, the bugacula is scurrying around trying to catch you and make you lose your candle counters.

What does your family like most about this game?:

It’s simple instructions, quick to set up (after the very first set up), and made us all laugh out loud a lot.
Tense at times, and lots of fun.
One where the kids can easily outplay the grown ups too.

Tell the Housebound With Kids community a bit about yourself…

We’re a family of four – mum, dad and two boys age 8 & 7.
We live in North Wales, and when we’re not out enjoying our beautiful countryside, we love a good movie night or games night at home.

Do you have any tips for other parents?

Creativity and laughter help us a lot.
